update

This post is to update folks on a prayer request I made quite some time ago. My daughter-in-law was pregnant with her and my son’s third pregnancy. The second child didn’t make it past the 7th month in the womb. I had requested prayers for a healthy pregnancy with number 3 for that reason and that my daughter-in-law was approaching 40 years of age at the time.
Mother and baby are fine-a baby boy born a year ago the past March. That is how far behind this update is. Also in the meantime she became pregnant again and we now have another little grandson born just last month(august 2016). Thank you all for your spiritual support and sorry for the late update. Be well-Blessings.

Congratulations & Praise The Lord. Praying for all.

May God be praised!

Hi puzzledtoo,

Thank you for the update! Congratulations on the birth of your grandchildren and to the parents! Praying in thanksgiving for all the blessings . . . for He is worthy……

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel
:signofcross:
St Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
…be our defense against the wickedness and
……snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray
…and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host,
…by the power of God,
…thrust into Hell Satan
…and all the other evil spirits
…who prowl about the world
…,.seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

The Memorare
Remember,
O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known,
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help
or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To thee I come, before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petition,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Amen.

**Road Ahead **
“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end.
Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think
……I am following your will does not mean that I am
……actually doing so.
But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you.
And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing.
I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.
And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road,
……though I may know nothing about it.
Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost
……and in the shadow of death. I will not fear,
……for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me
……to face my perils alone.”

Original Prayer to St. Michael
***:signofcross:
“O Glorious Prince of the heavenly host, St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the battle and in the terrible warfare that we are waging
against the principalities and powers,
against the rulers of this world of darkness,
against the evil spirits.
Come to the aid of man, whom Almighty God created immortal,
…***made in His own image and likeness,
…and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of Satan.

“Fight this day the battle of the Lord,
together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the
…proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless
…to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in Heaven.
That cruel, ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces
…the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels.
Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage.
Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the
…multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order
…to blot out the name of God and of His Christ,
…to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined
…for the crown of eternal glory.
This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood,
the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart,
the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity,
…and of every vice and iniquity.

“These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness
…the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb,
…and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions.
In the Holy Place itself, where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has
…been set up as the light of the world,
…they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety,
…with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep
…may be scattered.

“Arise then, O invincible Prince,
bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God,
…and give them the victory.
They venerate thee as their protector and patron;
…in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the
…malicious power of hell;
to thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude.
Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet,
…so far conquered that he may no
…longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church.
Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High,
…so that they may quickly find mercy in the sight of the Lord;
and vanquishing the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan,
…do thou again make him captive in the abyss,
…that he may no longer seduce the nations.
Amen.

V. Behold the Cross of the Lord; be scattered ye hostile powers.***
R. The Lion of the tribe of Judah has conquered the root of David.***
V. Let Thy mercies be upon us, O Lord.
R. As we have hoped in Thee.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.

Let us pray.
O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Thy holy Name, and as supplicants, we implore Thy clemency, that by the intercession of Mary, ever Virgin Immaculate and our Mother, and of the glorious St. Michael the Archangel, Thou wouldst deign to help us against Satan and all the other unclean spirits who wander about the world for the injury of the human race and the ruin of souls.
Amen.”

**Thanksgiving Prayer
:signofcross:
Heavenly Father,
Creator of all and source of all goodness and love,
please look kindly upon us,
receive our heartfelt gratitude
reminding us that You are always worthy of thanks.
Thank You, Heavenly Father,
for all the graces and blessings
You have bestowed upon us:
our faith and religious heritage;
the Priests who bring us the Sacraments;
our life, food and shelter;
our health, the love we have for one another;
our family and friends.
Thank You for those things You so generously give us
…and of which we are not even aware.
Dear Father, in Your infinite generosity, please grant us the grace of having
less “give me” and more gratitude throughout the coming years
…so that we may be aware that anything from You is good
…for You turn the “bad” into blessings for us.
Please Lord, grant us the grace of not forgetting that we can thank You
…over and over again for the same gift – and if we
…forget, may our Guardian Angel remind us.
Thank You, Lord. I Love You, Lord.
